CPAC isn’t the only convention in town, there was a liberal/green good jobs green jobs convention here and I talked with several people from that event:



And David

there was one other group I interviewed but one person wanted to be edited out so I just decided not to post it.

I talked to the Sonatores before the festivities began yesterday

Donald Trump at the podium. It was worth coming to CPAC just to see someone willing to say that out loud. It was the emperor has no clothes moment of CPAC

some other quotes from Trump:

“Leaders from China and Mexico can’t believe what they are getting away with. The view our leadership as weak and ineffective.”

“Most successful people don’t want to be scrutinized or abused”

Update: Trump has decided he doesn’t want to talk to bloggers row. Yup he’s not afraid of tough questions.

Internet has been REALLY? spotty and has hampered blogging, but here is some info.

Briefly visited the vendor area an awful lot of enthusiastic people there with a lot to say.

On the Michelle Bachmann speech there were some awesome quotes:

“We are the indispensable nation of the world”

“If the president wanted to prove he was Ronald Reagan he could sign onto a balanced budget Amendment. ”

Her speech was very well received and will be totally ignored by the MSM

Was at the Citizen’s united lunch which was great not only because it was the first good meal I’ve had in days but some excellent films and commercials.

Asked Matt Bossie about keeping the GOP honest, he quoted Reagan “Trust but verify”

Update: Pictures we got pictures!
